Last night the Triathlon Club of San Diego kicked off the 25th anniversary year for the club with the January club meeting and a visit from 2008 Ironman World Champion Craig Alexander. Dr. John Martinez hosted over 300 athletes at the Coast Wellness and Sports Center in San Diego for the meeting where Bob Babbitt of +Competitor Magazine+ and John Duke of +Triathlete Magazine+ interviewed "Crowie."

It was a great event and I was impressed by Craig Alexander’s class. When he spoke about the team of people, who are responsible for supporting the daily grind in an endurance athlete’s life, it really hit home. He is the real deal and has worked incredibly hard, “blue collar” style, for many years to earn his place at the top.
Other highlights included a cameo appearance by Active Expert and 6-time Ironman World Champion Dave Scott plus I got to meet and chat with Xterra triathlete and coach, Trevor Glavin, whose blog I’ve been following for the past few months.
Stay tuned for my next post with views from the red carpet at the Endurance Sports Awards this weekend!
